Best MacBook Air (2018) Cases iMore 2020
In almost every conceivable way, the MacBook Air with Retina display is smaller than the previous MacBook Air while still having a 13.3-inch display. It has 17% less volume than the previous MacBook Air, being shorter, shallower, and lighter than its predecessor. This means that soft cases, bags, and sleeves for the older MacBook Air will work just fine with the new model; however, hard cases will not. If you're looking to carry around you're new MacBook Air in something to protect it when you're on the move, here are our favorite options.
